The staff on board the cruise starting with Captain Roger Gustavsen and hotel director Steve Knott were all excellent. Special thanks to Assistant Maitre ' D Nelson Toreja, Assistant Maitre ' D Roel Saballegue, Assistant Maitre ' D Rochelle Dayrit. There service was excellent every day. I must also thank the food and beverage director Vitor Da Silva and Sicat(sunshine) Erano for making our cruise so wonderful. We have sailed on so many different cruises and this ship by far had the best staff we have ever experienced. So much attention to detail and the head chef Tyson was a fabulous chef! We dined in Le Bistro and the food was very good not to mention the fantastic dessert. We have now found our favorite ship to sail on. We cant wait to go back out an the Gem again. We really enjoyed meeting our fellow cruise critic members and wish we could have spent more time with them. If you are looking to sail on a ship that will make you feel very special the "Gem" is the one to sail on!

Cabin review: Obstructed Oceanview

Port and Shore Excursions

What should have been a long delay due to emergency on previous cruise was handled extremely efficiently and we boarded and sailed very quickly.The staff handled this situation very well.
San Juan is a very interesting old city port. We had visited many times before so we did not do any excursions. I highly recommend a visit to Old San Juan and there is a free trolly that takes you around the city.

We walked around for a short time but did not like that we kept getting harassed to buy items or rent a beach chair. We finally decided to back to the ship and just enjoy the sun and pool.

St Thomas is a fun place to visit and many enjoy all the shopping available.There is a really fun market to go to and you can spend the day shopping there. There are many ways to get around the island which makes it easy to visit.
